CHASE’S HURRICANE SUMMARY

ATLANTIC OCEAN
Active Storms (as of 8:00 PM EST, Monday, September 8th, 2008):

Ike Category 1 Hurricane 80 mph winds

SUMMARY:
The Atlantic is certainly not as active as it has been for the last couple of weeks.
All we currently have is Hurricane Ike, which has been weakening. It is expected to hit Western Cuba (which was devastated by Hurricane Gustav a couple weeks ago) and then head into the Gulf of Mexico. Once there, Ike is expected to strengthen again, and could become a Category 3, or 4, hurricane. Anyway, Ike is very dangerous, and you should keep an eye out for this beast.
Otherwise, the Atlantic is pretty empty. The remnants of Josephine are still wandering around, but thunderstorm activity is minimal in the system, and upper-level winds are not favorable for development.

 

EASTERN PACIFIC OCEAN
Active Storms (as of 8:00 PM EST, Monday, September 8th, 2008):

Lowell Tropical Storm 50 mph winds

SUMMARY:
The only system here is Lowell. It has 50 mph winds, and is heading northwest. HOWEVER, a turn is expected, and Lowell is expected to head to Baja California. The storm was expected to become a hurricane, but it most likely will not.
